Classic Capsule Wardrobe for Spring 2016

capsule wardrobe for spring

One of our most popular posts of all time was the capsule wardrobe we created for spring 2014

We still get questions about the items in that capsule to this day, and as most of them have long-since sold out, we figured it was time for an update. We’re definitely not trying to re-create the wheel with this post: as the nautical style is such a spring classic, and so popular amongst our visitors, we’ve simply updated and refined our original spring capsule wardrobe, using items available to buy right now. So you’ll find a lot of stripes, a lot of red, white and blue, and, above all, a selection of items which should easily mix and match to create effortless spring style that you don’t have to think too much about.

This capsule wardrobe is actually a little smaller than the original one: partly because not all of the same items were available, but also because we firmly believe you don’t have to own a huge amount of clothing in order to look stylish. In fact, sometimes the opposite is true, and the less you own, the easier it is to create combinations that work. As with any capsule wardrobe – or any WARDROBE, period – the key here is to buy the best quality you can afford, and to pay close attention to fit and fabric.

Inside our spring capsule wardrobe:

trench // blazer //  bag // floral dress // stripe dress //

red trousers // blue jeans // stripe skirt // print skirt // red flats // gold wedges 

blue cardigan // cream cardigan // breton top 

white t-shirt // navy top

(Please note that while all items were available at the time of writing, the nature of retail is such that items do sell out, so apologies if any are no longer available at the time of writing. We hope they provide you with the necessary inspiration to find something similar, though!)

And here are some outfits you can create using these items:
